I spend my days. shaking hands
Forgetting names. recycling cans: a comedian
There's trouble in our nation's capitol
My blues are black, my belly's full
A comedian is someone who tells jokes
It's lunchtime fix a pal a drink
It's nap-time paint the casket pink
Gut thee from me all half-wit-dim-wit souls
Happy Hanukkah. Ho-ho-ho
A comedian is someone who tells jokes
A comedian is someone who tells jokes
It's lunchtime fix a pal a drink
It's nap-time paint the casket pink
I wrote a check to save a whale
And like I said it's in the mail
A comedian is someone who tells jokes

    My InterpretationI think this song is about politicians. A comedian is someone who tells jokes, and it's sad that politicians are now the people we laugh at.

    My InterpretationIt's like they tried to write a song that has a real meaning to it, but then they realized that was hard. So we got this.
